Nice design, shame about the fit
This is the type of clothing that is difficult to review simply down to the fact it seems to flatter some shapes other than others - I can see it being a wonderful piece for a larger sized lady; the fabric is rich, and the shoulder design is a lovely mix of contemporary while keeping a classic line. The scoop neck was actually pretty low on me, but that would certainly alter with more in the chest area. You could happily have something underneath it or probably wear it as a top in its own right. It has a reasonable amount of stretch in it so it would probably be quite forgiving. The quality of the clothing itself is perfectly fine
The negatives for me is that it's just not fitted enough - I'm a size 8, and the size I bought was definitely baggy, especially around the waist (to the extent that it looked as though it had some pockets to the side). This wasn't assisted by the fact it finishes at the waist so it bagged out a bit more. The scoop line neck looked a little odd, as though someone had given it a bit of a tug. Essentially it looked *okay* but definitely not the effect I was after
The fabric was also a bit scratchy for me although that might be just me being overly sensitive - a vest underneath would resolve this issue though, so it's not a massive issue.
So, all in all, I wouldn't recommend it for my personal body shape (boyish) but I could see someone with more curves finding it quite flattering.

I liked the dark navy, it is a nice soft jumper. Probably prone to pilling. I didn't find it fitted so for a more fitted look you would need to downsize. It would look fine with a skirt or trousers. It finished on my natural waist. A point not noted in the description was that the back is slightly longer then the front of the jumper. The v neck was fine and there was no need to wear a camisole underneath.
